Hi Sushma!

I citate the OSS note 802992:

"

Until a standard workflow is available, your workflow requirements can

only be realized as customer specific functions. In many cases, it is

required to send notifications when a manager submits or approves or

rejects compensation planning data. In order to do this, you may

implement a trigger into the coding which is performed when the manager

hits the submit or approve button. This can only be done as

modification.

Depending on the exact scenario, a good place for such an insertion

could be function module HR_ECM_HANDLE_PROCESS_DATA, where the section after the call of form SUBMIT_ALL_RECS is processed when the manager has pressed the submit button. Similarly, for generating notifications after approvals or rejections, this might be done in the same function module

after the call of function module HR_ECM_CHANGE_STATUS_ALL_RECS.

However, please note that these hints should only provide a rough idea

how to implement a customer specific workflow and are not SAP provided

instructions on code changes. The exact design of such a modification

should be clarified in cooperation with our consulting staff depending

on the individual requirements.

"

I'll contact some PA-EC experts within SAP to find out if there are any enhancements on this field since the release of this note..

Best regards,

Zsolt

Dear Sushma!

I have a long investigation behind me, I contacted several developers of the application and we had a cheat with my manager in HCM as well about your question.

Finally I am a bit sad, because the result is: there arent any WFs within the EC and unfortunately they are also not planned to be implemented..

Solution is custom workflow.. How to build up these and how to let them work is another question, thus I would like to recommend you to post another question after your gave a try creating them..

Sorry, that I was not able to give you a better answer, however some other internal developer levels were ask to provide a useful answer.

Hope you all the best!

Best regards,

Zsolt

Hi Markus,

Directly modifying FM HR_ECM_HANDLE_PROCESS_DATA is only solution .

Or is there any way we create Z FM out of HR_ECM_HANDLE_PROCESS_DATA and attach some where in OADP.

Please guide us.
